Research: God did speak the world into existence?
Feb. 12, 2007 - Samuel J. Hunt, a science student in Kentucky has written a book called Episteme Scientia, The Law Of All That Is. It attempts to show that the construction of everything in the universe begins with a) the Holy Spirit (magnetic field); b) Light (an electric field); and c) that Light can be created by a sonic influence or sound."
Some of his teachers disagree, but others say his theories are pretty interesting.
- Researchers at institutions no less than UCLA and the University of Chicago have verified the production of light from bubbles when sound is passed through a liquid, called sonoluminescence.

Is This Noah’s Ark?
June 19, 2006 - Christian explorer Bob Cornuke has led an expedition to a mountain range in Iran, which he believes is the real Mt. Ararat. They took samples of huge hand-hewn logs from a man-made structure that is the right size for Noah's Ark.
The Ark is in an avalanche that has been covered up by ice and snow for a long time. Last year, record high temperatures melted the snow and ice to reveal the Ark.
- Five of the nine samples taken from the vessel were confirmed as petrified wood, some of which had sea fossils contained within at 13,100 feet in the Ararat mountain range in Northern Iran.

‘Missing link’ claim for fossils debunked by creationist group
Apr. 11,2006 - David Menton, biomedical research technician at the Mayo Clinic, says that the newly-found specimen, "Tiktaalik" is neither an amphibian or a reptile. Menton, representing "Answers In Genesis," holds a Ph.D. in cell biology from Brown University.
Furthermore, none of the lobe-fin fish, including Tiktaalik, have bones attaching their fins to the axial skeleton, and it is unlikely that these limbs would be weight-bearing since the fins that are attached are delicate.
- Tiktaalik, Menton said, is not unique in having these bones because other lobe-fish, such as “coelacanth” fish, also have them.

Churches urged to back evolution
Feb. 20, 2006 - Speakers at annual meeting of The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) urged churches to teach evolution. They fear that the new "Intelligent Design" concept threatens scientific literacy among schoolchildren.

‘Intelligent design’ faces first big court test
Sept. 23, 2005 - In Harrisburg, PA, a court battle begins today, in which parents challenge the decision by the Dover Area School District to instruct students that evolution is not a fact, but a theory, and that "Intelligent Design" is another possible explanation of life. The ACLU has joined the parents in their efforts to reverse the school board’s decision. The scientific basis of Intelligent Design will be attacked, but at a more basic level, the suit will try to show that the new teaching is really religion in disguise. Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education believes that the case will have a significant impact on the future of American public school education.
- This will be the first legal challenge to intelligent design, and we’ll see whether they have been able to mask the creationist underpinnings and basic orientation of intelligent design.

Creationist: Darwinists Growing Desperate to Defend Theory
May 14, 2005 - Instead of marshalling proof for the troubled theory of evolution, opponents of
intelligent design are resorting to mudslinging. A memo suggests that anti-evolutionists should be
portrayed as political opportunists, Evangelical activists, ignoramuses, breakers of rules, and
Dr. John West of the Seattle-based Discovery Institute says the opponents of intelligent
design have been saying that true scientists don't challenge Darwin's theory.
- "And then, lo and behold, we have these hearings where we have a parade of scientists
with PhDs in biology, geneticists from Cornell University, a biochemistry professor
from the University of Georgia."
